Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried announced the members of her newly created advisory committee to advance the state’s medical cannabis policies, which could potentially bolster MMJ business in the state.

The 18-member committee, which includes several of the state’s cannabis industry executives, will meet bimonthly to work to improve patient access, technology, innovation and other facets of the booming industry, according to Florida Politics.

Marijuana Business Daily projects that the MMJ industry in Florida will generate $425 million-525 million of sales this year, up from $225 million-$300 million in 2018.
